That patch seems to work, thank you.

I have only one (very) minor issue left: depending on the mode the
wrap-prefix may contain characters with different faces (e.g. in
emacs-lisp mode !!!;;; would be a correct prefix, the first three
characters with default face, the latter three with comment-face), hence
there is not really "the one" correct face to assign 'wrap-prefix with
`propertize`. That why I tried the variant

(setq adaptive-fill-function
  (lambda ()
    (and adaptive-fill-regexp
         (looking-at adaptive-fill-regexp)
         (match-string 0))))

hoping that (match-string 0) returns the whole prefix with the correct
fontification. However, there are situations where this does not work:
for example if one has a (very long) wrapped line without comment and
then inserts a semicolon (only one) at the beginning of that line to
comment it out, then the wrap-prefix does not get comment face (to be
precise, it has the correct font, thus your patch works, but not the
correct color). But if one inserts a second semicolon then the
wrap-prefix gets the correct color. I assume this happens because the
wrap-prefix is set before font-lock changed the face of inserted

Perhaps this is a more an issue of adaptive-wrap-mode, I
don't know. If my guess is correct, is it possible to run the
appropriate hooks (I think adaptive-wrap uses
`jit-lock-register`) *after* font-lock changed the face? Or is there
another, better way to detect the correct face?

If you don't have a solution to this question, don't worry. I'm quite
happy with your patch and it does already what I want ;)

Thank you again,
